"Just in time for the holidays, this is a nice alternative to pumpkin pie. Just before serving, dust with confectioners' sugar and serve with a dollop of whipped cream."

There was no mention of sugar in this recipe, which must have been a mistake. So I had to guess and I added two cups of sugar. The cake turned out alright, but it was lacking something. It needed more spice and I think it would have been better with the addition of walnuts and raisins. It took a very long time to bake (1 hour, 15 minutes) and I had to put aluminum foil over the top of it to keep it from burning after the first 30 minutes of baking. Plus, there was too much batter for one pan. It was okay, but nothing special.


I did follow the recipie, despite the lack of sweetener, and found it bland and dry. It was inedible.

I added 2 cups of sugar to the oil & pumpkin mixture and baked for ONLY 1 hour (not 1 hr 15 mins as suggested). I increased the amount of lemon juice in the glaze to 2 tablespoons as well. The cake came out delicious, moist and not too sweet. Since I keep a kosher home, I search out vegan dessert recipes to go with meat meals. This was very good after a roast chicken dinner!
